It’s hard to believe that we were just talking about fashion week, then suddenly holiday party dresses, and now, gift guides! The holidays are quick approaching, so I recommend you get a head start on your gift shopping – that way you won’t be left in a frenzy when Christmas finally arrives! With Thanksgiving just next week, Black Friday is the perfect time to take advantage of steep discounts and great deals. I know several of my favorite beauty retailers are on board with Black Friday so I wanted to go ahead and share my 2017 beauty gift guide. (Note: It’s also the last day of Sephora’s 15%-20% off!)
Whether your girl is a natural skincare enthusiast or a hardcore makeup lover, she’s bound to love something from my list! Here’s my 2017 beauty gift guide for every kind of girl.
The Conscious Beauty Enthusiast
Natural, organic, vegan, and gluten-free are all having a moment right now – not just in food but in beauty! And it’s falling right in line with the rise of wellness and living a healthy lifestyle. Luckily, green beauty has become extremely accessible this year with brands like Herbivore Botanicals, ILIA Beauty, Drunk Elephant, and Honest Beauty. So, shopping for your conscious beauty friend should be no issue. Here are my top picks.
The Girl Who LOVES Makeup
The girls who love makeup are the easiest to shop for. Although they probably already have a stash buried in their vanity and countless drawers chock-full of goods, they’re always on the hunt for the next best thing! That’s where you do your part. Brands are constantly pushing out novel products that continue to wow even the most insightful makeup lover. I love this self-tanner that I can’t recommend enough to my friends – and this eyeshadow palette that I use for bold and seductive look.
The Girl Who Doesn’t Wear Makeup
We all that friend who “doesn’t wear makeup” or likes very “natural” makeup. For these girls, I love introducing products that they may not have touched otherwise. For instance, a tinted lip balm, hydrating lip mask, priming moisturizer, or a skincare set. Just because someone doesn’t wear makeup doesn’t mean they shouldn’t take care of their skin…
The Skincare Fanatic
Skincare girls can be harder to shop for since they know their ingredients down to a tee. However, with a bit of research, it’s possible to surprise them. I’ve already done the research, so you can just pick from one of my favorites like this caviar serum or luxurious lip balm… Or try a microneedling tool or a quality makeup brush…
The K-Beauty Connoisseur
K-Beauty, like green beauty, has really blown up over the years giving us so many products to pick from. This is great news because Korean beauty companies just keep putting forth great things for everyone to try. Sheet masks will forever make wonderful gifts, but don’t hesitate to venture out a little into sleeping packs and fun lip products.
Which of these would you like for yourself?
